Grades are detrimental to education

Mojique
imsmarterthanyou98

Explanation: As the Pro, My burden will be to show that it is more likely that grades are detrimental to a child's education in more cases than they help them either theoretically or in practice. The con Burden is to show that grades are an integral part of education, and that they are helpful to more students than they detriment. Style: This is meant to be a mainly philosophical debate, and, though direct evidence is completely fine, it is not necessary. Either side may use a philosopher,...

They found that between 20 and 40 p...
